You can take a nice leisurely 6k walk around the Maschsee any time of the year. You will be greeted by many others with the same idea. A popular place to stroll on a Sunday.

I had visited this place when I was on Business trip with my colleague. This lake is really very nice, you can find swan in this lake. Many local guys jog regularly in evening, perfect place for horse riding. For couples, this place is like superb. Must to visit for others as well. Kids, this is perfect destination for you.
